WHAT HAPPENS HERE?

Digging in the Crates: Hip Hop Studies at Virginia Tech, or #VTDITC, exists to foster a sense of community among artists, fans, and scholars. We hope to model that students’ and community members’ personal interests are worthy of academic study and further institutionalize Hip Hop Studies’ presence at VT, the academy, and the larger community. 

WHAT WAS THE PROCESS?

#VTDITC, founded in 2016, is the result of the intentional collaboration of numerous transdisciplinary partner organizations. Our monthly seminar series seeks to celebrate scholarship through arts based research, culturally responsive pedagogy, community creation, and experiential learning. We offer free studio hours in Newman Library’s Media Design Studio B (Fridays 2-5), media literacy instruction for the community, practitioners for hire, and Hip Hop Study Hours at the Residential College at West Ambler Johnston (Wednesday 5:30-7). Learn more.
